I emailed the editor at United Media a couple of times about the status of the HIS & HERS submission but didn't receive an answer. I think it's safe to say that the syndicate known for PEANUTS, DILBERT, and PEARLS BEFORE SWINE is passing.
You might think this closes the book on my little strip, but you'd be wrong. I'll have an announcement about the future of H&H in a few weeks.
Here's the final tally, as far as I'm concerned.
United Media -- No response = NO
Universal Press -- email from editor: NO
Creators Syndicate -- form letter: NO
Washington Post Writers Group -- email from editor: work up more and resubmit
Tribune Media -- form letter: NO
King Features -- call from editor: NO
